Upscale Norway stay at glass-fronted beachfront hotel with supersized spa in the coastal town of Larvik - includes spa access and lovely extras

The Lowdown

It’s unexpectedly cool at this futuristic property in the under-the-radar town of Larvik, on Norway’s south coast. Opened in 2009, it’s fast become a go-to spot for guests seeking a relaxed stay with beach access and top-notch pampering. And best of all, it’s within driving distance from Oslo – Norway’s easy-going capital offering endless amounts of breathtaking natural landscapes.
Farris Bas is the first Nordic balneological health resort – so, as you may expect, it’s the expansive, 27,000-sq.-ft. on-site spa that truly steals the show here. Features including a swimming pool, Turkish bath, sauna, hot tubs and a plethora of treatments ranging from couples massages to signature facials. You’ll have a chance to indulge in utter tranquillity, as you take in the gorgeous and calming views out to the sea.
When it comes to dining, Farris Bad has it covered with a signature restaurant showcasing sophisticated Norwegian-influenced fare created with locally-produced and mostly organic ingredients. There’s also a bar for cocktails and craft beers, a brilliant gym for cardio workouts and scheduled classes, and 176 guest rooms and suites assuring minimalist-inspired, contemporary decor, coupled with plenty of living space and ample mod cons.

Amazing place!

I had a wonderful time at Farris Bad, the room was clean and had everything we needed, the staff was kind and helped you if uou needed it. The food was great and the spa was relaxing. Overall i would highly recommend this hotel!

Great stay at Farris Bad over the weekend 20 - 22 September 2019

Good experience of service from all staff groups
The junior suite we had was superb so we could really move in there for a period of time
Farris's bathroom has a very nice location by the sea and the facilities inside are very good, where both the treatment, the spa facilities are varied and professionally laid out.
Can safely recommend the place to others as a nice variation from a regular hotel stay

The best spa in Norway

This is my favorite spa-resort in Norway. First of all, the spa facilities, they have it all and they are the best on aufguss. They just got a brand new huge event-sauna, with different kind of aufgusses .Also the design, architecture, the food, the atmosphere, not to mension the feeling of the sea surounding you, is unique! Fantastic!
